This is great value from start to finish. We booked 2 Souvenir Tours for $10 each and for that we got a bottle of Steam Whistle Pilsner each, a glass and a bottle opener. Our tour guide (Emily I think) was great, really knowledgeable and friendly. The tour lasts approx. 30 mins and she explained about the history and brewing.... More

Quaint brewing house amid the locomotives and roundhouse yard. Very friendly staff, free sample and cool logo. The beer tastes great, unfortunately only one type of beer made, but it's delicious. Can't wait to do the tour, time permitting.

We are adults in our 40's, not big beer drinkers, attracted to this tour because of the interesting historic building. But, the whole tour is a lot of fun, the guide was very informative and we enjoyed it much more than we expected.

Our guide was very entertaining! A gift of a glass or opener is included with admission. Worth the $10 for sure!

This is like a non commercial family run business that takes you on a tour of their factory. It is fun and interesting. While drinking beer you will take a hosted tour around a high level walkway to see all the processes of beer making and bottle washing. All this for $10 or $15 which includes a six pack to... More

I was visiting the CN tower and read about Steam Whistle so I made sure to visit before leaving the area. We had Brandon as our guide and he was really cool and funny. It was nice to learn a little about the history of steam whistle as you drink. for 10dollars, you get a 30-40minute tour, 1 full beer... More
